Abstract

This report examines the impact of armed conflict on gender relations and the different ways in which it affects both women and men. It highlights the gender-specific disadvantages faced by women and men that have been left out of conventional interpretations of armed conflict and post-conflict reconstruction processes. The armed conflict exacerbates the inequalities in gender relations that existed in the pre-conflict period. Interventions in the conflict must take into account local contexts and the diverse realities of women and men who can simultaneously play the roles of activists and mothers/fathers, combatants and victims. The report makes other recommendations, including: improving the application of existing international laws; increase funding for specialized services to help both men and women victims of violence; and involve women in the decision-making processes.
